Claymobile for All Bache Martin Kindergarteners!

The Description

Help us fund The Claymobile program at Bache Martin. The Clay Studio teachers will come to the school to teach the kids how to make art with clay. The children will learn skills, channel their creativity, and get to take home the art they make after it's fired in the kiln! Claymobile, the Community Outreach arm of The Clay Studio, has been visiting the Kindergarteners at Bache Martin for several years. The program brings a full experience of ceramics arts to each child with experienced teachers and assistant teachers, high quality lessons plans, and most of all a fun learning environment! Learn more about the Claymobile program here. A video about Claymobile's great programs is here.

 

The teachers report that it is an important part of the children's experience and allow them each to express their thoughts and feelings in a special way.  This year we want to make sure all Kindergartners in the school have access to the program.  This includes three classes of children.  To support a 6 week residency for each class we need to raise $3,600.  This is the subsidized cost to the school after the grants and fundraising done by The Clay Studio to support the Claymobile's visits to Bache Martin.  Please help us give each Kindergartner at Bache Martin this memorable and powerful experience.  If each child's family could donate $10 per class ($60 total) we could easily reach our goal in no time! Thank you!

Back Up Plan

If we do not meet our goal, each class will have fewer visits from the Claymobile.  Each visit costs $200/class.  We will divide the funds so that each of the three classes has an equal number of visits.
